On Saturday, May 11, we had our May Crowning with the Faith Formation classes. The day was sunny and, of course, hot but a beautiful day for Our Lady. The way we chose the crowner was to see who had a birthday in May. Julianna raised her hand in excitement. Julianna is a little girl who has been cross-eyed since birth. She actually sees double. This does not stop her from doing anything. We knew this had to be a first-time event for her. The children prepared their song, “Ave Maria” to sing during the Crowning. The procession began with delight.
When Julianna crowned Our Lady, she was so holy and beautiful that it looked as if Mary was speaking to her heart.
These are small joys that say to us: “It is good for us to be here.” Mt. 17:4
Our Lady of Perpetual Help, pray for us!
